Well . . . here we are in Blytheville Arkansas, just finishing Breakfast, about to head North East, eventually to the Great White North. Hopefully, by the time we get to our Summer Home in Canada, it won't be the Proverbial Great White North, and the Winter Snow will be Nothing more than a Bad Memory.
Because of our Travels, it’s kind of Hard for Me to Write, since I'm Behind the Wheel of our F-250 Schlepping a 38-Foot RV, which takes all my Concentration . . . And because I'm no Youngster, when we Pull-In at the end of about a 350-Mile Drive to the RV Park . . . I’m pretty Tired.
ALL OF THAT SAID . . . While Driving, the Radio is Tuned to Fox News, Fox Business News & then Blues Music after I've heard more than enough of the News Alerts - or the Breaking News Mantra for the Umpteenth Time.
It’s always a Marvel to me, how the Media can take a Nothing-Story, and for Hours on End, and very often a Day or More – Keep on Rehashing the Crapola they Dramatize as News, which Passes for Breaking News.
BUT IT’S NOT ALL ABOUT FOX AND SIRIUS XM RADIO:
When we Pull over for Gas, Food and/or just Coffee – I read ALL THE EMAILS I RECEIVE, and all the Comments that are Posted on the Latest Editorial. I also use WIFI or my Data-Plan to Read the Usual Newspapers and News Sites, which I generally peruse from around the Planet . . .
AND BELIEVE ME – Because of my Addiction to what’s happening in the world, I’m going Kind Of Nuts to Start Writing about all the Lunacy that’s Invading our Culture and Freedoms.
IT SEEMS TO ME . . . That with Each Passing Day, the LEFT are becoming more and more Unglued, or perhaps UNHINGED, to the point that they will Trigger an event that could Change the Lives of Decent People throughout what we’ve always Considered to be the Free World . . . IN A FLASH.
THEY'RE PLAYING WITH FIRE:
I'm too Tired Right Now to Write about the more Recurrent Current Things, which are Worrying me more than just Somewhat, but I will get into it in Real Depth as soon as we stop for a Couple of Days . . .
But Not To Leave You Hanging & Guessing . . . What’s happening Today, with China, Russia, Iran, Hezbollah, Hamas, Gaza, Syria, Turkey . . . International Trade, the High Tech World, the Islamization of Europe, the Impending Central American Assault on the US/Mexican Border . . . and the HORRID Anti-American Democrats, who through the Treachery of the FBI, Justice Department, State Department and Congress, seem more to want America to SUFFER . . . Than To Have President Trump SUCCEED.
BUT IN ALL THIS MESS . . . BELIEVE IT OR NOT – I FOUND SOME DECENCY:
I have Written several Times about my First Cousin Todd’s Son . . . Jesse, who went missing some 7-Months Ago, while Touring the Mountains of Peru, before Starting His University Medical Studies.
Jessie was just 22-Years-Old when he went Missing . . . and as Far as his Dad (Todd) is Concerned, JESSE IS NOW JUST 23-YEARS OLD, and Todd will not stop Searching until Jesse is Found Alive, or Todd knows for certain that Jesse is not.
I WILL TELL YOU . . . That Todd is not a Rich Man, and everything Todd has, he has spent in the Search for his Son Jesse. And as soon as Todd Realized that Jesse was Missing, Todd was on a Plane to Peru, And He Hasn’t Come Home Yet.
And Every Day For Todd . . . it’s Hiking through the Mountains of Peru, into the Valleys, along the Hiking Trails and into the Villages with Guides, Translators & Professional Searchers.
There are a great Many People looking for Jesse, including one team of the Greatest Israeli Trackers who have been Flown into Peru at Great Expense to help the Search.
But in the Meantime, while Search & Tracking Teams, the Police and the Military are looking for Jesse, Todd is Relentless, and spends every day Searching with his own Teams, putting up Posters, speaking to Villagers, and giving as many Local Media Interviews as he can.
TODD AND I COMMUNICATE QUITE OFTEN VIA EMAIL & TEXTING:
From-Time-To-Time, Todd & I Speak on the Phone . . . but, because of the Costs Todd has to Bear Searching for Jesse, I really didn’t want to spend Todd’s Money, by causing Todd to Incur Long Distance & Roaming Charges.
SO I ASKED TODD A COUPE OF DAYS AGO . . . How Much Is This Phone Call Costing You? Todd’s Answer Had Me In Tears.
I Tried Several Times To Help Raise Money For Todd, which I’m certain was somewhat Successful, but in all Reality, was Probably just a Drop in The Bucket Compared to what Todd Really Needs . . .
“NOTHING” . . . TODD SAID:
Todd had a Standard Roaming Package through his Canadian Cell Phone Provider, Rogers Telecom, which covered him throughout Central and South America. But business being business, and even though Todd is in the Peruvian Mountains, several Miles above Sea Level, he still gets his Monthly Cellular Phone Bills.
And then he noticed that his Roaming Charge went up by $50 Per Month, which under Normal Circumstances wouldn’t be a Big Deal. But to Todd, every Dollar has Meaning. So, from Peru, he contacted Roger’s Client Service, and explained to the Person Several Thousand Miles Away in Canada, that he wasn’t in Peru on Vacation or for Business, but was there looking for his Son, who is Lost in the Peruvian Mountains . . . and as such, Could He Get A Break On The Price Hike?
With that, the Customer Service Representative asked Todd to Stay on the Line. And when someone else from Rogers came back on the Line, he introduced himself as a Senior Manager, and informed Todd, that he was Aware of Jesse . . . who was Missing in the Andes, since in Canada, this has become National News.
AND THIS IS WHAT STARTED TO TEAR ME-UP:
“Mr Galganov”, the Roger’s Manager Said . . . “As of Now, your Cell Phone Service is Free, as long as you're Searching for your Son, and all the Cellphone Costs you’ve been Charged from the Day you left Canada to look for your Son, have been Credited to your Account”.
IN THIS DAY AND AGE, WHEN IT’S ALL ABOUT ME . . . ME . . . ME - WHO DOES THIS?
It Got Even Better – Todd continued by Telling Me, that his Customers from his Sign Making Company, are not just continuing to give him Business, but are looking at ways they can Increase giving him Business.
AND THEN THERE WAS GAZ MÉTRO . . . Which is the Exclusive Montreal Supplier of Natural Gas, who Notified Todd, UNSOLICITED, that there would be no Bills for Todd’s Winter Gas, as long as He’s In Peru Looking for Jesse.
TODD’S HOUSE HAS BEEN EMPTY THIS WINTER . . . But that didn't Mean his Driveway and Walk weren't kept Shovel Clean by the People Todd generally Hired to do the Snow Clearing Service. And when Todd Explained to them, that he wasn’t going to be Home for the Winter, and that he had to save his Money to Search for Jesse – THEY ASKED WHAT MONEY?
THEN THERE WERE OTHER PEOPLE . . . like the Gardeners who offered to Cut Todd’s Grass and Tend to his Rock Garden this Spring & Summer, to which Todd Responded that he will be Home in time for him to do that himself, and Thanked them for their offer, to which they said . . . YOU’LL NEED TO HAVE THE PLACE SPRUCED-UP BEFORE YOU COME HOME.
If That Doesn’t Help Restore Some Faith In Human Nature . . . Nothing Will.
After Reading, Speaking & Writing about all of these Horrible LEFTIST JERKS in our Societies, who are Working Overtime to Destroy the Wonderful Freedoms we all Enjoy . . . THIS DOSE OF CONSERVATIVE HUMAN KINDNESS CAME AT THE BEST TIME.
I’LL WRITE TO YOU AGAIN SOON . . . But in the meantime, I’ll continue to Read your Emails & Comments. I can't Guarantee that I‘ll be able to Respond. But I will Guarantee . . . THAT WHATEVER YOU SEND TO ME WILL BE READ.
Best Regards . . . Howard Galganov
